Arrow Freedom's 1st Choice--San Diego in 2 hours

San Diego was pretty chill, a pity I was only here for 2 hours

I hope you enjoy the photos

Love the shots but there is no way you made it to all those different parts of town in 2 hours. You really captured the colors of the city and quirky the designs on the old style bungallows in Sherman Heights and Golden Hill.

Is this the new Navy housing? I can't think of what else these buildings could be because they don't look finished. At first I thought this was Tijuana because these towers look like complete shit


Great thread King

Those towers do look bad. I still can't figure out where they are. If they are the Navy Housing, then it went completely under the radar and they definitely didn't live up to the renderings. The renderings look pretty good!




But, lovely photos. Again.

Another great set. I don't know SD that well, but it looks like you were all over.

They all are great, and not the typical San Diego shots. Very nice!

Thanks everybody.

& yes, those towers were across the border in TJ--you can even see the border I was surprised that they existed, not only because of their sheer ugliness, but TJ being the nexus of a cartel war spawning heaps of violence.

Well for being there for only 2 hours you got some great shots and dusk is the perfect time to do so. The shot of the city at night from across the bay is awesome... it almost looks like the water is frozen or something.

I am going to go to the Hotel Del Coronado tomorrow to visit family... man I hate the drive there.
